Leonie Denis Ceiling Fans December 20, 2018 13:33:58
Take a walk-through of the nearest Home Depot. By walking up and down the aisles and looking at the various fans that are displayed on the ceilings above, you’ll be able to see how much lower some fans hang than others do. By sticking with the options that hug the ceiling, you’ll have your light and air circulation back and in working condition in no time.
Once your fan is mounted you can add lights to make your ceiling fan serve more than one purpose and be an even better addition to your home. Lights can be added while mounting the fan, and there are three types of lighting methods to choose from: downlights, uplights, or one of the popular light kits. Uplights and downlights are just as they sound with uplights pointing toward the ceiling, and downlights pointing toward the center of the room. Each provides a slightly different effect. Uplights emanate an aura-like gleam to dress up a ceiling, and downlights brighten an entire room with a radiant glow. Light kits also come with many ceiling fans and can be classified as a type of downlight. The light kit replaces any central lighting that was previously hanging from the ceiling.
Many times you can get really good deals on low profile fans. When ceiling fans first came back into vogue, they were quite expensive. Now, however, they have come down in price even though their overall quality has markedly improved. You’ll find that with a low profile fan you’ll even have room to add a light kit if you choose. They also make types of lights that don’t hang down nearly as far as other models do.
There are 2 types of outdoor ceiling fans, those rated for DAMP locations and those rated for WET locations. There is a notable difference between the two and it is important that you choose the right type for your application. In either case, make sure the fan you purchase is UL Listed for the application you need so that you know it can be safely installed without creating a potential electrical hazard.
When you purchase a Hunter ceiling fan, you will have the peace of mind knowing that your ceiling fan is backed by a limited Lifetime Motor Warranty. The WhipserWind motor is available for most models of Hunter ceiling fans, and it transports mega-powerful air movement. Combined with the whisper quiet performance of the Hunter ceiling fan, you can’t find a better value.
Functionality - Contrary to popular belief, ceiling fans are not for the hot-weather months alone. Sure, they provide that extra cooling power in summer, but did you know that you can use your fan in winter, too? That’s right. A ceiling fan can also help to make the hot air from your heater rise in winter, as well. All you have to do is to reverse the rotation of the blades. Just hit the switch and make your blades move counterclockwise. This cause the fan to pull the air instead of push it. This is especially beneficial if you live in a two-story home. Myself, I do live in a two story house, and I find that on moderate winter days I can pull the hot air from downstairs and thus not have to use the upstairs heater at all. Since first discovering this simple technique, I have cut my electricity bill in winter by 25%. Yes, it really works!
